To be filled with the Spirit is to live all of life in light of God’s presence. Praise and thanksgiving highlight His presence and activity. As we focus on God’s goodness, our hearts are shaped to trust Him more, our minds are renewed, and our relationships are transformed. As you meditate on this Scripture passage, ask God how you can intentionally create an atmosphere of praise.
Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.—Ephesians 5:18-20
Prayer: God, You are good, and Your love endures forever. Thank You for life and breath and hope. Thank You for Jesus. Thank You for Your Spirit. Thank You for the encouragement of Scripture. Thank You that I can meditate on Your goodness and choose to praise You today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
